Very impressed with Andy's first lesson with Jorge, and looking forward to a few more! An experienced, well educated dog trainer who is very aware of all the financial, mental, and emotional aspects that come along with dog training. I'm looking forward to the dog that my Andy will become with his training from Jorge.

Jorge is very knowledgeable and a good teacher, as after all it is us he's training. My dog responded immediately and we were able to make so many changes with simply redefining our roles and explaining to our pet what is expected. Can't wait to continue, I know this will meet my goals.

We hired George to help us train our new family member Mr. Max. On the first visit George just amazed us with his skills and passion for dog training. George is the Florida Ceaser. If your looking for a good trainer I recommend George Velez.

Ashley did an outstanding job working with my son Kevin, and his dog Anna. Anna was adopted from a kill shelter and has some trust and aggression issues. Ashley calmly, and quietly came in and secured Anna's trust. She worked diligently with Kevin to help him be able to re-train Anna. Kevin's work schedule had many changes. Ashley went above and beyond in accommodating Kevin to keep the training sessions going. I would highly recommend Ashley to anyone who would like some help with dog training. She is also a vet tech which makes it most helpful as some dogs do develop behavior issues that are related to an illness or pain. She noticed an ear infection in Kevin's other dog and helped him get the dog vetted for it. I would definitely hire Ashley again should the need arise for some "Positive Dog Training."

We have had several appointments so far and at this point we are so very happy with the progress. There has been a huge change in our dog's fear aggressive behavior, though we still have a ways to go. Based on the progress so far, I highly recommend Ashley for help with your dog training needs!

What an amazing job Ashley did training our dog. He is so well behaved and her knowledge of dogs is the reason why. She also helped us with one on one training. We are so glad we chose PAC dog training. Our dog is ready for the next step of training.

We found Susan Vergara, the proprietor of Wagging Willow to be a very knowledgeable and professional dog trainer. We are especially happy to see her work with our problem child, a super exuberant and playful 75 lb. Pit Bull/Labrador mix. It is amazing to see how he responds to her training, and we are thankful for the tools she has given us to continue on helping him to be a more calm and centered dog. Her method relies completely on the Reward Based training method. We recommend Wagging Willow to anyone looking for a dog trainer. The fees are very reasonable too.

Working with Susan was a pleasure. Her skills are equally matched by her love for what she does. She successfully taught our 2 year old dog (who came to us not even knowing her name) all the basics and several extra skills in a matter of several weeks. We did the private sessions and were amazed at how much could be accomplished in a single session with total 1-on-1 attention. I could not be more satisfied with our experience and highly recommend Wagging Willow and Susan for any of your dog training needs!

Susan is very flexible, and willing to work on specific items that my puppy needed. She takes her time, and makes sure you understand how to work with your pet. My puppy was so calm and obedient at the end of just 6 weeks. I would readily recommend her to anyone who is in need of puppy training!

Todd was extremely professional, helpful and accommodating. I had been using a different dog trainer before hiring him and it was a worlds difference!! He came prepared with informational paperwork, a protocol to follow for Bentley's separation and even CHEESE!!! Bentley can be a fearful dog and often displays what I thought was separation anxiety. After one session with Todd he was able to evaluate Bentley and come to the conclusion that Bentley DOES NOT have severe separation anxiety. I couldn't believe my eyes when I walked away from Bentley and he didn't follow me but was literally eating out of the palm of Todd's hand. Since our visit I've implemented the suggestions Todd made to provide Bentley with a distraction upon my departure. He has improved tremendously and it's only been maybe a month of the new treats and toys?? All and all I am VERY pleased and impressed with Todd's service. I would highly recommend him for your dog training needs!

Todd was great with our 8 month old puppy Jake. I loved how even before we hired him he was reaching out to me to see if he would be the trainer for us. Jake looked forward to seeing him every week and has really helped our family keep Jake safe through commands and calm when new people come to the house. We highly recommend Todd and South Orlando Dog Training.

I had the wonderful privilege of working with Todd at South Orlando Dog Training. He did an amazing job with our two dogs Sheldon & Tiffany. It was amazing to see him work directly with the animals. What a patient, peaceful instructor... with the humans too.

Laura trained my not-so-friendly mixed breed through several sessions. I was surprised at the ease my dog learned basic behavior with her. Laura also taught me some new tricks - for training and altering behaviors my dog had already adopted. With continued sessions we learned some fun stuff plus advanced behavior modifications. I was extremely pleased, and after nearly a year, continue to be thrilled with her techniques and vast knowledge of dogs and their innate behaviors. I learned a lot about my dog and how to handle some difficult situations. Will recommend and use Laura for all my dog training and home care when out of town. Allison

My puppy, Lani, and I met Camila last night for our consultation and we are very impressed. She is very professional and in just an hour I felt reassured by what I learned from her and by the way she interacted with Lani. We are thrilled that she will be guiding us through this exciting, rewarding, but at times stressful, puppy training ride. Thank you!

Laura is extremely helpful in any and all ways she can be. From detailed emails after our sessions, to really hands on training with our dog. Her sessions with Bowser has improved his behaving skills as well as his potty training. I would recommend her to anyone needing help with their pup.

I cannot say enough good about Jill! My dog, Diamond was so out of control before I hired Jill, and now she is like the perfect dog! Jill seems to know much more than I do about how dogs think! I never realized that some things I was doing with Diamond, were the exact opposite of what I should be doing! I know this is true because of how Diamond reacted to Jill. Thank you so much Jill for getting me to know my own dog. I will let you know how she is doing, but I have no doubts. Talk to you soon, and I and Diamond will miss you coming here every week! Talk to you soon! di

I have had dogs all my life, but adopting Maggie Mae became quite a challenge. Traditional dog training did not work. Jill's approach saved Maggie Mae & MM staying with our family. Jill is very dedicated in her training approach, her teachings, & her caring for the dogs & their owners. I would highly recommend ( and have many times) Jill & the dog training service she provides.

Jill took great care of my dog, KC, for years. KC has severe separation anxiety and Jill worked around my work schedule so that KC wouldn't have to be home alone. She also helped me when KC has some severe stomach issues. Jill was a great sounding board and source of information to supplement what my vet told me. KC loved her time with Jill and friends.

We've done a meet and greet with Madi and our two GSDs LOVE her! We are doing an evening this week for Madi to spend some time with the dogs before she house sits with them within the next couple of weeks. Madi was extremely professional and has a great energy about her plus she's just qualified in dog training so we are looking forward to hiring her for that too to help out with our fur-babies. Highly recommend.

Madi did a great job of watching our home and especially taking care of our dog. You can tell she has a great love for dogs and is very comfortable with them. Our dog does not warm up easily to many people, but he took to Madi right away. He even slept in the bed with her at night! He was calm and happy when we arrived home from our trip. Would definitely use Madi again and recommend her to others.

It was our first time using a pet sitter to stay overnight in our home and Madi made us feel extremely comfortable. You could immediately tell that she has a strong love of animals and our dog, Gracie, was drawn to her right away. Madi is extremely professional and we would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a trustworthy pet sitter.

Denise is AMAZING. We had previously seen another trainer but were unsatisfied with the work, especially at a $100 an hour rate. Denise is down to earth, affordable, and remarkably easy to work with. It is obvious she loves dogs and in just two lessons has made a phenomenal difference in our dog, Wrangler.

Highly recommend Kim for any type of dog training. We rescued a very fearful GSD that had spend the first 2 years of her life in various pet store cages. I have dealt with many dogs before, but never one this "broken." Kim was really able to bring her around to be a happy, healthy girl!

My family was devestated when we found Mo'bedience dog training. Our 4 1/2 year old male olde english bulldog Bruno had been increasingly agressive. We had never given Bruno any boundries. We loved him so much we just let him do whatever he wanted, not realizing this wasnt truly loving Bruno. By not establishing boundries for Bruno he took on the very difficult and stressful job of being alpha in our house. During the hurricane after days of the power being out and extreme levels of stress in the house. Bruno was in a dark room the kids ran in and fell on him startling him. During the chaos he bit our son. We thought putting him down was going to be our only option. Thats when we found Mo'obedience. I have to say I was still very unsure if it was possible to get the results we needed with our dog. When we picked up our dog 14 days later he was amazing. I couldnt believe the manners my dog had learned. We recieved daily texts and videos keeping us updated the whole time. It was so reassuring to see the updates of what he was learning. Mo'obedience made it possible for us to keep our family dog that we had grown to love so much. Seeing Bruno snuggling with his kids and having him home is priceless. The kids love "working with him"and being active in his training. They are very excited about teach him new tricks and set up obstacle courses for him. I cant say thank you enough to Mo'obedience training for what they did for our family. We are forever greatful THANK YOU ❤

I met Maureen at Home Depot while she was working with a dog in training. I was immediately impressed. I had been seriously thinking of some form of formal training for my two year old Boston Terrier. My Penny is a sweet and smart dog, just out of control at times. Long story short, eventually I made the commitment to get Penny the training she needed to become a happier and obedient dog. For her safety and my sanity. We met once a week for one hour, for four weeks. Maureen taught Penny, my husband and myself the basics. I was very surprised at how easily Penny picked up the commands. Maureen was patient with Penny and gave her much praise when she completed a task. We absolutely Love our Penny, and Maureen has helped make her a better dog, and my husband better pet parents. I highly recommend Maureen and Mo'bedience!

We had such an amazing experience. Maureen has such a wonderful heart. She is passionate about her love for dogs and and truly cares about the outcome of the training experience. She is very committed to making sure each dog not only meets the basics, but makes sure that you (the owner) is completely satisfied and comfortable with the training your dog received. Maureen was not only patient with Theo, but helped us give him the confidence he needs to be a great dog. We are so happy to have Maureen and Mo'bedience. We could not ask for anything more.

I have worked with many pet sitters through the years. Fallyn was the first that kept me informed every step of the way ... when she arrived ... when she left.. how the visit went. She even included photos of the visit. I will continue to use Joyful Dogs of Winter Park and would confidently recommend them for your pet care needs.
